Michele's Fine Dining plans to go pink

"We've been going around to businesses and they've been great helping us out with stuff," explained Garrant.

Garrant said he's received enormous help from Fleisher, with Fleisher even ordering special wine for the evening.

"He knows we're looking to get a fire truck and we're going to paint it pink. This wine is called Pink Truck wine out in California," Garrant said, adding Fleisher also ordered a wine called Fire Truck.

Fleisher also told Garrant his plan is to have the Guardians leave the restaurant with the full amount of money needed for the truck.

If they succeed, the organization can then look towards their next goal of working with CVPH Medical Center's cancer center.

"Our goal down the road is to start a fund at the Fitzpatrick Cancer [Center] for people without insurance," said Garrant, adding it may also be used to pay for copays.

The evening of entertainment at Michele's Fine Dining, 5131 U.S. Ave., will also feature a deejay and live entertainment from a local band.
